Sources are telling Church Militant privately that during last week's meeting between Pope Francis and the U.S. delegation of Cardinals Daniel DiNardo and Sean O’Malley, as well as Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez, the Pope basically told them to go jump in the lake.
DiNardo went to the Pope with three proposals to address the burgeoning clerical sex abuse crisis which is largely homosexual in nature.
The three proposals the Americans laid in front of the Pope were:
One: A full investigation into "the questions surrounding" the McCarrick situation. How did he rise to such prominence and maintain his high profile when so many knew of his homosexual rape and assaults against seminarians in the beach house? Specifically, DiNardo presented to Pope Francis for the Vatican to conduct an apostolic visitation into these questions "in concert with" a group of laypeople identified for their expertise by the USCCB's lay-run National Review Board who will be "empowered to act."
Two: An investigation into Abp. Viganò's charges exposing a whole homosexual network that is like an octopus with tentacles reaching everywhere strangling the life out of the Church.
Three: An opening of new and confidential channels for reporting complaints against bishops and advocacy for more effective resolution of future complaints.
DiNardo has previously said publicly that all three goals "will be pursued according to three criteria: proper independence, sufficient authority and substantial leadership by laity."
Of course, because of the way the Church is governed, and it's bishops — including the bishop of Rome — that is being discussed, all of the plans, of course, need the explicit approval of the Pope. That's why the delegation was in Rome, to begin with, to petition His Holiness to launch these investigations. So imagine the utter shock of the men when the Pope just cut them off and said: Nope; ain't going to happen — no investigations, no lay oversight, forget it. I'll take of all this in the two-day long meeting of bishops in Rome I've called for February. Thank you, gentlemen.
And just like that, the meeting was over.
Of course, this isn't how it's being discussed publicly, but this is exactly what happened privately. Pope Francis himself — personally and directly — simply cut the legs out from any investigation of any of this evil. Which when you consider the run-up to this meeting — can't really be a surprise.
First, it took DiNardo and the others a couple of weeks to get the meeting in the first place — that's telling all by itself. Then, while stalling and ignoring the request for a meeting over the most grave situation in the Church — probably ever in America — the Pope does find time to meet with embattled and beleaguered homosexualist kingpin Cdl. Donald Wuerl as well as another homosexualist cardinal, Blase Cupich.
Both those men — especially Cupich — just keep repeating the company line which is essentially: nothing to see here, folks, no big deal, it's a rabbit hole, it's not a massive, massive crisis.
And then, the great big signal from the Pope himself when questioned by reporters about Viganò's testimony implicating him and many others: "I'm not going to say a single word."
So the strategy from the Pope and his homosexualist cabal running the show is about as out there as it can be, we are not saying or allowing anything to happen in this regard, and it's back to business as usual. Many of these men covered up — and in some cases participated in — these horrible filthy sexually immoral crimes, and the official response is: pray and stay silent.
It's not precisely clear at this point what can now be done in response, but one thing that can be guaranteed it no one who loves the Church is about to stay silent. You can take that to the bank.
